03.03.2022 - 16.04.2022
Since their earliest existence humans have left behind marks in different shapes and formats– cave paintings, cupules, hieroglyphs etc. Vervoort’s work stems from this universal human urge to mark and questions it in a world that is becoming increasingly more digital everyday. He strives towards a ‘digital effect’ in painting, sometimes referring to his work as ‘expressive cave paintings’. Like hieroglyphs Vervoort includes hidden messages in paintings; symboles like pyramids, mathematical cubes, words and shapes mimicking them almost in a childlike drawn way creating a kind of hyperdimension children’s drawing.
